Disgraceful, Hatred Bakery
I am a married, mother of 2, who always pays her bills, employed worker who has been with the same company for over 9 years, and, yes, a taxpayer. However, I am in shock with the level of racism that still resides in our great state of Louisiana. I stopped by Jumonville's Bakery. After entering the establishment with my two kids & mother in tow, another patron entered the bakery to pick up her order-a cake laced with the word ""Obama"" on it. An eldery, black couple was also there & when they heard there was an Obama cake, they were excited, wanted to view it. The lady at the counter said it was just his name on the cake. After the two other patrons left, me & my family were still there. I guess they assumed that we all were together. So, we were just waiting and looking over all of the items in the case. When the lady who gave the cake to the patron that ordered it came back, she told another lady at the counter that the lady she had given it to said, ""We'll get there soon."" To that, she replied, her eyes rolled back. She also said, ""Where's the McCain cake?"" To which the other lady said, ""Waiting to be ordered, I guess."" And, this takes the cake (pardon my pun), the lady that served the cake to the patron replied, ""Obama-I should've put a bomb in it; Obama-Bin Laden, they're all in the same group."" All of this exchange going on in front of me-in front of my two little kids who just wanted to get a doughnut. I am outraged and disheartened as I write this. I have never experienced racism before, but it hurts more because I was a patron. Everyone is entitled to their views and opinions. This should not be expressed in the presence of your customers or children. Jumonville's will not have the pleasure of getting my hard earned money anymore because the blatant racism that was present in the store 20 minutes ago was enough for me to patronize another establishment who will keep their views and opinions to themselves.
